free flow Friday

This is the face of a woman on a coin discovered in a collection from the Society of Antiquaries in Newcastle on Tyne. Oh that chin (pointed), ooh that nose (witch-like), aaahhh that forehead (high). Wasn't she a beauty? Ok, maybe not but she is Cleopatra. It's a coin that Marc Antony fashioned for her and he is on the back. I didn't bother with a picture of him (but he's no looker either) and she looks NOTHING like Elizabeth Taylor. False advertising indeed!
